Robert Mugabe stands as the last flickering torch of resistance to imperialism and neo-colonialism on the continent. The man who immovably and with great resolve pushed for the redistribution of land among his people. Knowing very well the iniquitous forces he would have to contend with. White farmers who inherited the land during Zimbabwe’s colonial subjugation where forcibly removed, restoring indigenous African peoples to the land once tilled by their ancestors. It was, undoubtedly, a pristine manifestation of justice, an act for which Zimbabwe and her peoples have suffered systematic attempts of sabotage by the western axis of imperialism to cripple Zimbabwe’s economy.
Yet with such great pressures, Mugabe stayed the course of justice declaring “(The west) precludes our people’s right to their God-given resources, which in their view must be controlled by their kith and kin. I am termed dictator because I have rejected this supremacist view and frustrated the neo-colonialists. We will proceed with current land reform with or without sanctions! … Let that position be known here and abroad. The land is ours. It’s not European and we have taken it, we have given it to the rightful people!”
The reactionary comprador African lackeys of imperialism, those the late anti-colonial revolutionary and martyr in the cause of African liberation Amilcar Cabral spoke in regards to as nothing more than the “Cancer that must be rooted and upturned from Africa” has now moved against Mugabe who has been the subject of an unabating overt two decades long imperialist campaign of aggression and subterfuge.
Soon they will move against Algeria, Eritrea, Seychelles (tried in 1981), Namibia and any remaining vestigial anti-colonial socialist movement that even dares affect even a morsel of resistance to western hegemonic control over its mineral and hydrocarbon deposits; any program directed toward the solemn liberation of the African masses will be met by an imperialist funded and guided insurgency.
We are surely on our way to become slaves if anything in our own homelands.
